Daylan Kuefler, Kamloops Blazers, WHL (6th Round, 2022)

Daylan Kuefler continued his streak of solid performances with three more points last week as the Kamloops Blazers went 2-1.

Kuefler added two goals and an assist last week, with two of his points coming in the Blazers' loss to the Moose Jaw Warriors. Kuefler scored midway through the third period as he collected his own rebound and put a nifty move in tight to tuck it past the goalie. It was his 11th goal this season.

After missing a few games due to injury, Kuefler has turned it on since his return. He is operating at over a point per game, with 20 points in 17 games.

Isaiah George, London Knights, OHL (4th Round, 2022)

The London Knights are one of the hottest teams in all of the CHL, with the return of Isaiah George being the spark that ignited their play. In the 12 games since George's return from injury, The Knights have won ten of their last 11. The team has catapulted into second place in the OHL's Western Conference.

George didn't find the scoresheet last week for London but continues his steady pace of play. Now seeing top pairing minutes, George has been paired with Montreal Canadiens' former first-round pick Logan Mailloux.

The two have a bit of a thunder-and-lightning dynamic with George being the quick, great-skating defenseman and Mailloux being more of the physical force but still dynamic on the offensive end.

George now has one goal and three assists on the season for the surging Knights.

Alex Jefferies, Merrimack College, NCAA (4th Round, 2020)

In his Junior season at Merrimack College, Alex Jefferies has helped turn his Warriors team into a force to be reckoned with in the NCAA. Merrimack, now ranked no. 13 in the country, is off to a 10-3 start and is fourth in the Hockey East standings.

In Merrimack's one game last week, Jefferies and the Warriors convincingly defeated Holy Cross by a score of 5-1.

Like he has all season, Jefferies registered a point extending his point streak to five games with an assist on the Warriors' fourth goal. The Farmingham Mass. native now has 16 points in 14 games as Merrimack continues its quest for an NCAA tournament birth.
